Here some of the comments so far:

5/25/2023: This is great. I would like to use the first part about the 3 different intellects to preface the school year with my advisees and ethics class. The part about sports will definitely be useful in engaging their interest as a handful of my students are pro athletes! Maybe this is in the previous part of the book, but maybe give some background on who Al Farabi was at the very beginning? For my assignment, I copied and pasted a little paragraph about him from Wikipedia and put it in there. Also, it would be interesting to mention he was a music theorist and mention that when you write about the teaching of drumming.
I also like how you very occasionally reference your personal life, giving it a bit of a memoir feeling. because when you read it, it sounds academic (which is a good thing) but then when it mentions ¨my wife Lisa¨ it´s like, oh yeah this is a real person! it makes it more personable.

The bridging to modern science part can definitely be used in my psychology class too. I mainly talk about neuroscience and biopsychology because it is what I am most into.
For now I have posted the article in my Google Classrooms and students can do something with it for extra credit. Maybe a couple of them will.
